Big Band Beatles Songs - Bob Leaper

All My Loving
Big Band Beatles Songs
Arranged And Directed By Bob Leaper
London LL 3391

This album was reissued in 1968 on Decca/Phase 4. There is a rare and pricey import CD out there apparently remastered from the original recording.

Most Beatles covers albums turn out to be cheesy fun or just not so good... I mean... who can really cover The Beatles? However this album, the first for London by Leaper, features unique arrangements and rocks out The Beatles in big band fashion.

This promotional copy has a solid white label also imprinted with "Not For Sale".  "Happy Radio Gets Results - WWIL" is stamped on the back.

  1. This would be the inspiration for the Nutley Brass Plays The Ramones
